CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. -- Authorities in Catawba County are investigating an officer involved shooting that happened Tuesday  night.

The shooting took place at a home off of Jim Stone Street around 10 p.m.

Authorities were called to the home after a call was made for a domestic disturbance. Once police arrived on scene, a man pointed a gun at the officers.

Officers then shot the suspect, according to authorities.

The man's condition and identity have not been released. 

This is the second shooting involving officers in Catawba County. 

One person was injured Monday night and a police officer was shot in his vest when a drug search in Hickory turned into a shootout, authorities say.

It happened about 11:30 p.m. at a house in the 1500 block of 31st Street Court SE, police say. That is in a quiet neighborhood on the east side of Hickory, a short distance south of Interstate 40
